Keansburg officials say broken pipe is serious problem
Officials say the collapsed pipe in Keansburg last week is a greater problem for the borough then previously expected.
Borough officials thought they were dealing with a partially collapsed pipe that could be repaired in a few days, but residents are being told the problem could last for a year.
Keansburg officials say that fixing the problem is not that simple. Companies must bid on the work and approval for the project must come from the state.
Borough officials have installed a pump at the foot of the beach in case of heavy rainfall and are asking residents to be patient.
